the virus grows, if you follow the metaphor that bullying is a systemic virus, then the environment has to change so the virus cannot grow and the only way the environment changes is if youth and adults begin to speak with one voice about changing the social norms that allows it to happen. it makes sense to most of us, you have it khaifrpb the social norms. we must educate. but we must go beyond thinking more rigor will get us better achievement. we have to remember a school is a community and in a xhuept, people look out for each other. they've got each other's back. how do we begin to promote that idea that we are in this thing together? we believe it's through, unfortunately but truly, self-interest. kids are driven developmentally by the desire to fit in, to belong, to be part of an affinity group. if we can capitalize on their desire to look out for their friends and give them some more tools and opportunities and support, they will begin to do what we need them to do to at least confront it in their own small cell of social influence and the compounding and leveraging of that

staffing level and provide all required services in a safe environment, which we are 110,000% committed to. this critical fund thattion we're asking for is necessary for our centers to function and makes a difference in our ability to continue to provide vital services. and as my colleagues also mentioned this last two years have been extremely difficult with the transition to managed care and also just the possibility that our centers would no longer be around. this has created a lot of fear and distress within our centers which we have had to manage and we have also had to work diligently beyond what we ever thought to ensure that our clients would continue to be eligible for our centers. so, what i'm asking for and hopefully that we will get is the $400,000 that we are requesting today. thank you. >> thank you very much. next speaker, please. >>> hello, good afternoon, board of supervisors. my name is sarah chan, the program director of self-help for the elderly adult services. we're located in the richmond district. every day we serve around 70 to 80 very frail mono lingual china speak

hard to let her do the things she wanted to do and keep it in a safe environment that we had some control over. and that was a difficult task and we worked long hours discussing it with her and what we felt was important and how she should behave. >> what went through my mind was initially the feeling that she was a teenager, i knew jill was very strong in hr personality and i knew that she was a good kid, a really good -- both my daughters are great kids. she was just exploring her sort of self-identity and i saw it as a way for her to become independent so i supported it. but it frustrated me that she was pushing away from the family. >> the day jill died i walked into her bedroom to wake her up around 11:00 am and i walked in and the dogs jumped up on the bed and she said a sweet hello to me. and i said i was concerned because she was sleeping late and i thought she should get up and get started on her day, because it was sunday. >> i came home and saw jill had been, she was awake and she was talking but she wouldn't talk to me. i thought she was just mad because i cut her

to stormwater infrastructure to transport water away from the urban environment. one approach was to carry waste and stormwater through the same pipe. this combined system was less expensive than building two individual pipe networks. and stormwater was seen as a way to flush out the sewers. through the 19th century, the combined system was considered state-of-the-art throughout the world, and is still in use in many cities today. but cities constructed these systems before treatment was the standard. and even today's largest treatment plant doesn't have the capacity to treat the sudden volumes of water rushing through a combined system during rain. the plant is overloaded, and the excess rainwater, mixed with untreated raw sewage, is diverted straight into local waterways, creating a combined sewer overflow, or cso. there are over 700 communities in the united states with combined sewer systems. the other approach was to separate wastewater from stormwater, using two pipe networks. this separate system simply carries the stormwater away from the city. but even separate systems pollute the water

to reduce the infrastructure's impact upon the environment. on the front lines of protecting the beaches, are the crews that clean out the stormwater system. man: this big vactor truck works on the same principle as your vacuum cleaner in your house, only this thing sucks up the whole house. some of the storm drains collect a lot of trash. i started cleaning drains in '93. they were horrible because they hadn't been maintained so much. now this is a priority. you have trash, animal waste, and it ends up on our beaches. that is a health risk. that is one of the main reasons why we have to close the beaches after heavy rain. narrator: but even when it's not raining, water still enters the stormwater system, carrying pollutants. here on the west coast, a lot of our storm drain systems are separate from the sanitary sewer system, so if you dump something in the storm drain, it goes right to the ocean untreated. alamillo: we haven't had a major rainstorm in the last year or so yet there's a lot of water in this creek here. i would say 20% of it is natural and the other 80% is runoff. shapiro:

in a deleveraging environment. many of the plans have yet to be put in place. we're definitely making progress. the markets should generally be moving higher but moving to fast to far on a near-term basis can cause some weakness and some pullback on the near-term basis. so we've been very much a advocate of kind of a cautiously constructive of positioning for portfolios for investors as a whole. not hiding in cash and treasurys but not necessarily jumping up and down on every stock we see. ashley: what fits the bill when you're cautiously optimistic and you kind of want to hedge your bets a little bit? >> what this means, we're trying to take selective risks. we're taking risks. we want clients to take risks. it is not hide under the covers and just own cash. but taking selective risks means you're not taking blind equity risk. that means buying some credit risk. high yield bonds. bank loans. international emerging marketing market debt. all these of those are attractive opportunities right now on a long-term basis. within equities, find your protection there. actually be more defensive in equ
